I've bought more metal leaning records this year than I have any other year before. Here's another to add to that list. The debut LP from Dead In The Dirt, 'The Blind Hole.' Southern Lord Records. This band is all over the place musically. Elements of punk, hardcore, grindcore, crust, and even some death metal all shine through on this record, but I find this record leaning more towards grind than anything else - vegan straight edge grind to be exact. This record is heavy and fast, and definitely the band's best material to date. Great production job as well. Very promising debut LP, and I look forward to hearing more from them.
